Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Visited for the second time in about a year and just as good as the first, if not better. Very high standard of cooking at very reasonable prices.

“Once again, another superb evening”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

We are so lucky to live in Masham and be able to walk to Vennell's to sample each menu that Jon devises - his Eggs Benedict has a twist that is full of flavour that compliments the creamy fresh egg. Yummy! We followed with the hake with the mushroom ketchup, a beautiful piece of fish meaty yet flakey.
Alas, no space left for desert

“Autumn menu ..... Superb food and great value”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

The scallops, followed baked hake and then apple pie ...... Scrumptious.
Sole, pork and apple pie ...... Delicious
Could have had grouse or ox cheek .... Had those before and thoroughly enjoyed

Can see why Yorkshire Life had the restaurant in the last three for consideration of restaurant of the Year

“Very nice meal”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

We had a fantastic evening at Vennell's. It's a beautiful restaurant, with a great seasonal menu and extensive wine list. Our food was cooked impeccably and the service was friendly and helpful. Would definitely return.

“One of the best restaurants in Yorkshire”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We visited Vennels on a Saturday night and arrived at the same time as a number of other customers. However we were attended to promptly and sat for a drink prior to being shown to our table. There was a wide selection of drinks including rarities such as Yorkshire gin and Thornbrough cider (unfortunately there was none of this in stock on Saturday - a good excuse for us to return!)

Menu is reasonably priced and excellent value when you consider the quality of the food. We had the scallops, hake, pork and grouse and all were exceptional. The pork crackling being one of the tastiest things I have ever eaten! The service was efficient and unobtrusive and we had a good chat with the owner at the end of the night. Wine was fairly priced with a decent selection.

We couldn't manage dessert but coffees came with an unbelievably chocolatey fudge square which suggests that desserts would also have been winners.

This for me was everything a good restaurant should be without a hint of the pretentiousness and snobbery that accompanies a lot of city restaurants. Simple but beautifully prepared food in nice surroundings at a fair price. We will be back soon!
